My clients know they can trust me and that’s why they recommend me’. Her clients say that her Toolkit© passion and experience has enabled their success. 100% of her business has been by referral. Vi International is now managed by her daughter enabling Nicola to use her expertise with her Vistage Group Members.

Nicola joined Vistage in September 2014 to bring her vast experience to CEO’s and MD’s of member companies. ‘When I heard about Vistage I wished I had that expert intervention as I was building my business – it would have saved me making mistakes. Now I want to bring my knowledge and experience together with the decades of know-how at Vistage to enable Business Leaders in the Bath Bristol and Swindon areas to achieve their vision of success’.
